Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a good day today. The recipe I have here is a Lemon Pound Cake, something I was trying to create and bake for a little while. I love the texture of the cake and the bright yellow colour, it also reminds me of the cake served with school dinners, fluffy and filling!! I really enjoyed making the cake because the ingredients and method were very different to a normal cake but it turned out amazing and tastes delicious. This cake would be perfect for any occasion and enjoyed by many people.
Recipe: Lemon Pound Cake (makes 1 loaf tin)
280g self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
195g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Zest of 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp lemon juice
First thing, preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a loaf tine with baking paper.
Then add the dry ingredients (flour,, baking powder, sugar, salt and zest) to a large bowl and mix well.
Next, add the butter, egg, milk, vanilla extract and lemon juice.
Mix everything together until you get a smooth cake batter, that’s still a little thick.
Pour into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for 1 hour, but after the first 30 minutes turn it up to gas mark 6.
Dust with a little icing sugar and leave to cool down completely before serving.
Hey guys, Jamaican ginger cake is one of my favourite cakes aside from chocolate 😋 I found this recipe online and I just had to bake it and share it with you guys. There’s a lot of sugar in the recipe from the soft dark sugar, golden syrup and treacle but it doesn’t taste overly sweet. It was also really runny so I did wonder how the gingerbread would turn out and here is the result…
Makes: 1 loaf tin
175g plain flour, sifted
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
2 tbsp milk or milk alternative
75g black treacle
75g golden syrup
75g dark brown soft sugar
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line a loaf tin with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl mix, sift the flour and spices then separately mix the bicarbonate soda with milk and set aside.
3. Then, into a saucepan measure the treacle, syrup, sugar and butter with 75ml of water. Heat gently until everything is thoroughly melted.
4. Next add the syrup mixture to the flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until smooth. Beat in the egg and add the bicarbonate soda and milk.
5. Mix well and pour into the prepared baking tin, place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes before taking out.
Hi guys, the last time I tried to make a red velvet cake I was not as successful but these cupcakes are fantastic. When ever decorating with a sweet top I try to make sure the actual cake mixture is not too sweet so when you bite into the cupcake there’s a subtle sweetness from the cream cheese.
On top I’ve added some sugar coloured crystals which looked great in the pictures.
